I really don’t know where to put this band in. But maybe that’s a big positive plus-point for them. I was totally surprised – a lot of instruments, different tones of voices (female and male), and a great variety of melodies are used. – Twan Sibon, Brutalism.com, NL

After hearing this tape once, I was laying knocked out under my desk, bursting out of its joints because of its many different styles… too far for all pathetic mainstream listeners, but when you’re in for progressive music, this tape is a must. DEMO OF THE MONTH”AARDSCHOK Mag, NL

…. a very aggressive tone marked by distorted guitars which alternate with jazz chords and atmospheric parts reconstructed into a grind-core inferno of rare intensity. Definitely one of the best demos of 1996FIGHT AMNESIA zine, Germany

The diversity of music and the complexity of the structures makes this not your everyday kind of metalILL LITERATURE Mag, USA

Quite precious with cared, original sound (a sort of labyrinthic perspective), good guitar playing, original with other instruments and fucking with them. A good work!Francesca Nicoli, ATARAXIA, Italy

Oratorio Mortem is a more mature work where guitars and keyboards dominate. More attention is given to vocal parts. In short, one more step forward is madeDEATH BITE Zine, Lithuania

One of the most astonishing tracks on the compilation CD” – Albert Bell, FORSAKEN/NOMAD SON/ SACRO SANCTUS, Malta

It sounds very avant-garde!!Kobi Farhi, ORPHANED LAND, Israel

This song is great and very original!!! …. Some thing that impressed me from this song was that the death metal part was sung by a soprano vocalist with screams in the background. An original song with weird and echoed atmosphere, and a good mixture with avant-garde and death metal.MISTBREED zine, Gozo, Malta

Experimental music, very well structured, unbelievable!!!HOLY Records, France

Musicianship is recommended for people who stand up i.e. very mature and open-minded people, or a zine editor with 5000 bands yet no-one sounding like SCEPTOCRYPT!DUSK WOEROT Zine #4, Colombia

You people out there always griping about music today not being original enough, well Sceptocrypt bring back the lost art of originality! SCEPTOCRYPT is all over the place, not for everybody, but very good at what they do…. ALL labels interested in progressive extreme metal please check in with SCEPTOCRYPT, a force to be reckoned with in the realm of progressive metal in the very near future!ETERNAL DARKNESS Zine #11, USA.

… I am still astonished by the erudite multi-lingual lyrics and I also have a picture in my mind that live performances by the band could be accompanied by visual images projected onto a screen. The music is so expressive that it suggests different images whenever I listen to it.Pete Farrugia, LCM/ RGT music programmer, UK

I didn’t expect to hear a cocktail of such different and sophisticated music. A great dose of avantgarde and progressive metal makes the basis of the music, but it is only some of the styles that could be found in their music as SCEPTOCRYPT use not only underground styles (such as death, doom, grind, ambient, etc.) but they are not afraid to experiment with jazz, art rock and lots of atmospheric and epic introductions here. Very unique, we can praise this group for their wide musical views and for not being afraid to experiment. … no end to their progress, SCEPTOCRYPT is simply modern, lyric and avant-garde metal ….. special because of its lyrics written in English, Greek, Latin, German and Maltese.DEATH BITE Zine, Lithuania

Being gifted of a good technique, open-mindedness and fantasy, SCEPTOCRYPT has never been a band like the others. Every time I have to review them, I try to encourage myself because I know they’ll give me a hard time! ….. there’s flashes of ingeniousness here and there…… they have good solutions for their music, something that the majority of underground bands have not. Recommended to open minded people who also like technical stuff.KOITO Zine, Italy

death metal usually does absolutely nothing for me, but this band are not only more melodic than I was expecting, they are more innovative and original. …I never thought I’d say this of a death metal band, but this tape is actually an interesting listen in the main, due to the fact that it’s not all metal, there’s other genres in there too…. all the songs are very well done.BLISS record label/AQUAMARINE zine, UK
